This technique looks confusing, but is not difficult to sew. These alternating pleats are just created by marking pleats at the top, and the bottom. The pleats at the bottom should be marked directly in between the marked top pleats. When you sew the pleats, it looks like the fabric is folded in on itself and intertwined together.

It took me a while to realize that these are CIRCLES of felt!  It sure would take a lot of patience to make such an adornment, but I might try to manipulate some felt to find the right way to make it.  Really beautiful!  And imagine the same in multiple colors.  It should be awesome! #fabric manipulation #fabric origami #felt
